Thanks to each and every one of you for your heartwarming and thoughtful comments to me regarding Gunther's accident. I can't tell you how comforting it was to sit there and read each of them as they came in. You all helped me through a tough time, and I can't thank you enough. I had several emails asking for my address, giving me extra thoughts on Gunther's situation, and even offering money to help with the vet bills! The thought was so sweet, but the money is not necessary. What was necessary to me was all of your thoughtfulness, comforting comments and emails, and your prayers. A wonderful neighborhood woman even left homemade chicken soup, dog cookies and treats, and a get well note for Gunther on our front porch today! And another dear lady left him some dog cookies from a local dog bakery and the sweetest get well card. I'm so overwhelmed with everyone's kindness!
They have all worked beautifully! Gunther is doing much better after 5 days of intensive "Daddy Care". The vet has called almost every day to check on him. I'm happy to report that on the "Limp Scale" with 10 being the worst limp, Gunther is now a 7. Not great by any standards, but better than the 10 that he started at. Again, thanks for all of your concerns!
On to my two cards for this post. I've started some Valentines and I have to admit, Valentine's Day is not one of my most favorite holidays. In fact, I have really disliked it ever since I was in grade school. But, I do like sending Valentines and so I'm making them. Here is the first:
OK, no jokes about stuff coming out of the bee's rear end! LOL This little guy is from a stamp set called "Don't Bug Me" by Recollections. The heart borders are made with the MS punch. I stamped the flourishes behind the bee, then embellished them with MS glitter and sparkly hearts punched out with a heart punch from glitter paper.
Here is the second card:
The flowers are the new MS pop up water lily punch (small, they have a large one too). The paper is by The Paper Studio and Bazzill. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with red ep. The butterfly is done with a Cuttlebug. This CB "set" comes with a cutting die for the butterfly, and 3 special embossing folders that fit the butterfly after it has been cut to emboss 3 different designs on to the butterfly.
Well, that is my first 2 Valentine's Day cards. My next project is doing my very first Magic Box. It's done, I just can't seem to photograph it correctly. So I'll be wrestling with my camera and it till I get it right!
Thanks again for stopping by and again for your kindness. I'm such a lucky guy! Don't forget the Pic of the Week below!
